Big brown beautiful eyes
Staring right into mine
Your palm on my left cheek
Drawing my face in
as your lips plant kisses on my forehead.
The moment was finally here
your smile was just as amazing
as I knew it would be,
and with each smile you gave off
my cheeks couldn’t help but puff up.
“You’re so beautiful,” you’d whisper
at every chance, you got to say it.
And of course, my smile would widen,
Every moment spent with you
was nothing short of amazing.
It’s funny how you have been here the whole time
and I never paid attention.
Everything about you is perfect.
Your eyes, down to your nose, your lips
your smile and your laugh.
There’s indeed a right time for everything,
Ours is now.
